Notes
Survey number HABS MO-1252-FF
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-107).
Significance: Built in 1902-03 by speculator J.B. Montgomery, this 2-1/2 story frame house was first occupied by newspaperman Harry S. Jewell, owner of the Springfield Leader. In 1916 it was sold to Winfred M. Baldwin, vice president of Rogers & Baldwin Hardware, and has remained in family hands since. Featuring an asymmetrical massing and picturesque roofline and relatively muted ornamentation, the house represents a transition from Victorian ostentatiousness to neoclassical austerity. It has been altered little and maintained well and is in virtually original condition today - one of the most handsomely crafted and proportioned of the upper middle class dwellings in the Walnut-Dollison Historic District.
